Let’s have something light, bubbly and amusing to celebrate the arrival of another weekend. Here’s what the drummer, Pat, says about this video, a cover a of a Journey song: “You know a lot of bands cover this song, and they do a great job. It really is a great song. When the idea came up to have us do a shot for shot remake of the video, we lost it! When it came time to shoot the video, none of us could keep a straight face, with the mullet wigs, and horribly awesome wardrobe. Goodwill rocks, by the way! Once we played the video next to the original music video, by Journey, we knew that we had something totally hilarious, and cool.”
In addition to Pat, Glass Delirium is Michelle on vocals, Scott on guitars, Aeon on bass, and David on keys. The band’s home town is Denver, Colorado, and you can meet them on Facebook:
On the 28th of March, Johnny Wore Black released their much anticipated debut album, “Walking Underwater Part 1.” It was full of atmospheric elements combined with dark and melancholic vocals soothing to the psyche. Click here for the review of that album. Just five months later…that’s now in case you are counting; a new single, ‘A Cut Above’ is upon us in preparation for, as you might have guessed…”Walking Underwater Part 2.”
While continuing with an atmospheric and emotive style, ‘A Cut Above’ is more upbeat lending itself to more of a hard rock vibe. If you thought the sophomore album would be a continuation of this year’s earlier release, ‘A Cut Above’ certainly does not intend to let us think that. The song will also be accompanied by a “new and intriguing video.” No doubt, it will be interesting to see what is in store for “Walking Underwater Part 2.” For now, their is no set date for the second installment except that we can expect “later this year” (most likely October) for the new music. Click here to follow Johnny Wore Black and check out their progress and videos they have already released. Head over to iTunes to pre-order today!
I first became aware of the Scottish experience known as Biffy Clyro when they were selected to headline one of the nights at Sonisphere UK. I think it was 2010, but that little detail isn’t really important. I thought who the hell are they? There was actually a lot of backlash in chat forums about them playing. I heard a couple songs and thought they were pretty good. Ultimately, I agree Biffy Clyro was probably not the best choice to headline a metal festival, but I don’t get paid to make those decisions. So, I bought their most recent album at the time, Only Revolutions to see what they were all about. Since then, I have become quite a fan of the band and their alternative style. Even my kids enjoy their music.
…Are we alive, because God, tricked us and, this is all just a joke on us.
